Volunteer to help prevent home fires

The American Red Cross of Southern Arizona is calling for volunteers to help prevent home fire by installing free smoke alarms in the Flowing Wells, Homer Davis Neighborhood on Saturday, April 16th, 2016.

This neighborhood has been identified by our national preparedness division as at high risk for home fire related injuries and fatalities. Nationally, seven times a day, someone dies in a home fire. Reports of injury from a fire occur every 40 minutes, with fire departments responding to nearly 1,000 home fire calls a day. The American Red Cross is addressing the issue directly through their Home Fire Preparedness Campaign aimed at reducing fatality and injury due to house fires by 25% over the next 4 years or by 2019.
